OOTD | The Leather Pant

 T-Shirt All Saints / Beanie UNIF / Leather Trousers NastyGal / Creepers T.U.K.

 Hi lovelies! So as you can see by the sun in the above photos, it still isn't really cold enough in Brisbane to justify wearing leather trousers. However I was too impatient to wait for the weather, so I am currently sticking to air conditioned locations and wearing them regardless.

Shoes | Jeffrey Campbell Argo

It has been quite a while since I last did a shoe review. You may recall the last shoes, reviewed by me, were quite similar to those you see pictured above (see previous post here). The truth of the matter is that I broke the black ones by London Rebel within a few weeks but the white ones are still going strong. However, a girl needs comfortable and reliable black sandals so I held out buying a straight replacement and waited till I could find a similar pair in better quality. Enter ZOMP, my favourite Brisbane shoe store, and a spectacular (even more spectacular now) sale. 
Already owning and believing in the quality of Jeffrey Campbell shoes, I knew that these babies wouldn't let me down. When I saw the Argo shoe for $80 sitting in my size in the ZOMP window I couldn't say no. It was looking to be hot for several more months and I needed sandals badly. 

In an unsurprising comparison to the black Stereo sandals by London Rebel these have lasted me many more nights out. The leather upper and lining gives me great confidence that my massive feet won't be tearing these apart any time soon. The sole is completely rubber so they are reasonably heavy. 

I appreciate that these are quite closed in the at the toe but still let the air circulate and look super cute paired with socks. One negative would be that the buckle cuts quite low on the ankle which can lead to a stumble every now and them if you're not paying attention.

These are still available on the ZOMP website (here) for a total bargain. If they're your size and you like this style, I would snap them right up! 

Happy Wednesday, lovely people!

Travel | London #3

Hi lovelies! So this is the last round of snaps from my trip to England. I've been loving sorting through these photos and reminiscing. On my last day in London I went for a walk through St Paul's Cathedral and over the Millennium Bridge. I popped into the Tate Gallery and saw a beautiful Matisse exhibition, but cameras were off limits inside.

OOTD | Seersucker Lady

Khaki Midi Skirt - Topshop / Grey Mottled V-Neck - BONDS / Cardigan - Vintage via RaRa Superstar / Lace-up Boots - R.M. Williams

I've got a super cute and lady-like outfit for you this week. This was a hasty purchase pre-job interview a few weeks ago and has been aching to be in an outfit post since. I love a good midi-skirt and the pleats in this one make me giddy. Its a light seersucker that falls so nicely without too much need for an iron. It was fairly pricey but I figure the cut is so timeless and the quality is high enough that it will last for some time. I would also team this with cute wooden heels for more fancy occasions.

OOTD | Ripped at the Knees

 Crop Top NastyGal / Necklaces eBay / Jeans Urban Outfitters / Shoes Nike Air Propels

Hi lovelies! I've been loving dressing comfortably of late. The weather still isn't particularly cold during the day, so velvet has been doing a nice job of keeping me warm but not too warm. This crop top has a matching midi pencil skirt, and whilst I love a matching two piece, it felt a bit much for a casual afternoon. I'm looking forward to wearing the pair together on a night out glammed up with some heels.

Music | Current Picks #1

Including only one favourite song/artist/album in my monthly round-up is something I find hard to narrow down. Listening to and finding new music is a huge part of my everyday, and with so much being released globally every week, I think it is only fit that I share current favourites with you. It is also easier to share them in this way, compared to a playlist, because often they do no suit being played alongside each other at all. k

Courtney Barnett

With a positively overwhelming Australian sound, Barnett has produced an album of prose perfectly suited to its musical accompaniment. I have always been a supporter of local tunes, and there is nothing better when an musician embraces their accent, especially when it is your own. I can't wait to hear more from this talented woman and am so happy for her recent success in the USA with The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas

Travel | London #2

Hi lovelies! Here is round two of photographs. Springtime in London is just beautiful, with all the trees just starting to come back to life after winter. I loved the mixture of old and new architecture throughout London. Such an interesting contrast.

Recipe | Bircher Muesli

Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day; you could say it inspires me to get out of bed more than anything else. This being the case, I am always trying to make this first meal better and better. Recently inspired by a breakfast out with the girls, I thought I'd try my hand at a bircher muesli. Let me know if you try this or have any suggestions.

OOTD | Pink & PVC

 Fisherman Jumper American Apparel / Belt American Apparel / PVC Skirt Missguided / Rings Assorted Markets / UNIF Lost Sole Boots

Hi lovelies! I never thought I would be buying something that was both pastel pink and PVC. I have been lusting after this skirt since last year and when it was restocked I couldn't help myself. I sized up to a 10 as many bloggers had said that being PVC the fabric was very tight. Honestly though I could have done with the 8. I can't be bothered with exchanging it though and with a belt it's no problem.

Review | Soap and Glory Kick Ass Mini-Haul

As you know, Jess recently took a trip to England and being the wonderful friend she is, took a tiny order of beauty goodies that are sadly not sold in Australia. Before we get started, I apologise for breaking the number one rule of beauty blogging and using these products before I took photos; I simply didn't have time and wanted to trial them! I did get more products than this but these are two skin products I requested from Soap and Glory.

Travel | London #1

Hi lovelies! As I was going through my photos from England I realised just how many I had taken. Over 500 before editing. I simply can't just only 20 to show you, even if some of the shots do feature a random tourist's head. Above was my trip down Carnaby St. I of course was there for the shopping, and check out how beautiful the interior at the Monki store is!
